      Connection Vanishing

      Hello everyone

      Im having a problem with my router lately concerning some games. Most noteably its been with Spore Creature Creator and Warhammer Online.

      Basically my connection will just vanish.
      I cant connect to any webpages.
      Cant open up the router homepage.
      I have to restart my pc to regain my connection. Its as if my route isn't plugged in anymore.

      Strange thing is anyone else in my house using the internet wirelessly dont haev any problems when this is happening.

      Has anyone experienced a problem like this or similar.

      Also I cant seem to upgrade my fireware. When ever i try it says:

      "Upgrade file is not the correct type or version for this device.
      Upgrade failed.

      Please obtain the correct file and try again. "

      Even though i know its the right file for the right route.

      Route is Netgear Super Wireless ADSL Router DG834GT.

      Is it the Sky router?

      What version of FW is it?

      Try this link re the FW

      Get your Sky V1 Firmware here!

      Also you could try turning off the UPnP if it has the original FW on it.

      The latest Sky firmware is V1.03.87. It is very likely you already have it.

      Try uninstalling your wireless adapter then re-install it using the latest manufacturers drivers. Don't use drivers installed by Windows.
